Compassion Even to the Gentiles

Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon

Scripture: Mark 8:1-10

Many contemporary “scholars” have rejected Mark’s account of Jesus’ feeding of the 4,000 in Decapolis, pointing to the many similarities between this account, and the feeding of the 5,000 near Bethsaida. What they fail to see, however, are the many dissimilarities between the two accounts. In fact, it is because of one major dissimilarity, that this miracle in Mark 8 communicates a whole new message to Mark’s audience in Rome.

Add. Ref.: Acts 2:1-4
